    Oh No

    This was unbelievable to me. there is no cancer in my family as far back as anyone can remember. never believed i would have this. Yes, I could have heart or diabeties, but not cancer. it was just unbelievable. some days I deal well and others I just want to screem or hide. when I have to meet with the dr or take more tests those days are hard. I also have to keep up appearances for my spouse. he just is so matter of fact, but he has to be feeling more. he has been through so much of this with his first wife, oldest son and now me too. If i show how scared I am I don't think he would deal with it well.
